A special “thank you” to Jaye Rieser for her time and energy in helping to assemble this working Board and her leadership for the start-up tasks in getting the Board operational.Your Help With Outreach is Welcomed
As we continue to establish MenHealing as an independent organization, we welcome your help for us to reach out to other Weekend of Recovery Alumni and Friends plus to new supporters of our work. You can help us by sharing information about MenHealing with other male survivors and allies, encouraging others to join our outreach mailing list, and forwarding our web address. Think of one or several people you know who might want to stay informed of our work – and reaching out to them with information about our new and on-going organization.
Thanks in advance for helping MenHealing to expand our outreach.

Securing financial support for our new MenHealing enterprise remains a critical area of attention.
Thanks again to everyone who has already made a financial contribution. If you have not yet contributed, please consider whether you can help – financial gifts in any amount are greatly appreciated.
We need to raise money to support (1) resources for a solid Scholarship Fund prior to opening registration for 2018 WORs and (2) program expenses for our new organization infrastructure – we are committed to maintaining the lowest possible administrative overhead, but we do have a minimal amount of costs to maintain our organizational operations.
We are now able to process “Sustainer” financial gifts – supporters who want to provide on-going financial support by pledging monthly, quarterly, or annual monetary contributions. This is now easy to activate at our website.
We are deeply grateful for any amount of financial support you can contribute.
Thanks again for your continued interest and support for our Weekend of Recovery activities. Please feel free to send your feedback and any ideas about our work via: email@example.com
Jim – for the WOR Facilitator Team
